real estate + passion

So, I’m passionate about real estate in general, and specifically about helping people build long-term wealth by investing in rental properties.  In addition to all of that, I really enjoy the fact that being a Realtor allows me to help people buy and sell their personal residences, too.  This is such an important investment, and it’s risky to trust those transactions to just anyone (or to chance).  I highly recommend that you utilize the professional services of licensed Agents, Inspectors, Appraisers, etc.

Anyway, this weekend I enjoyed taking a look at a few potential investment homes.  This one is near Beach Street and N. Tarrant Parkway in North Fort Worth.  Taking a quick look prior to obtaining a professional inspection, I’d say that it needs around $10K of work in order to be a nice, solid rental home.  It’s on a corner lot, has 1,700+ square feet of living space and even has a two-car garage.  The asking price is around $85K.  So, there are some pretty good deals out there these days.  🙂

 

 

Ignited!

Hi, everyone!  Well, although I’ve never really considered myself to be a writer, but more of a student of life, I realize how important of an outlet writing can be (and how the lives of people can really benefit from reading about the experiences of others).  Over the past two years, my life has been totally transformed by some reading that I sought.  My hope is that you might pick up some useful tidbits for yourself.

SuccessMag-Cover-February-2010
In early 2010, a magazine cover caught my eye at my local Barnes and Noble.  It was Dave Ramsey on the cover of Success magazine.  Since I was familiar with Dave and his Total Money Makeover, I nabbed a copy of the mag, having never even heard of Success.  I read the issue cover to cover and quickly became a subscriber.  The limitations of my thinking began the process of being expanded month by month.  In a future post, I’ll tell you about the book that became the big catalyst for change in my life.
